Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: What if no Hunter?

I posted a clip in the Hunter Lyrics thread that has a moment at a show from '95 that still haunts me to this last show and it will forever ring in my ears. So Grateful that my last shows were spectacular, not as much as the ones from '82 or '83, but still heartfelt and pure.

Bass players are the weak link in almost every GD cover band. The problem is that they are bass players instead of Grateful Dead players. The sonic soundscape comes before musical correctness.

I play bass in one band and guitar in another. I picked up the bass because no one I knew would play one the way I wanted it to sound. I finally found a bassist who plays Dead - and I love it.

Sorry been away. I will listen. Don't think I've ever hear a 95 cut ever. :) Do you have any sources on Phil's style? i mean I can hear Jerry over the years but I can't say the same for Phil.

Btw I can't read Hunter lyrics without singing along inside. Funny huh?
